Was at work surveying meters (I work for the local natural gas company), and came upon this gem of a repair job by Frontier. A 100 pair cable has been spliced into this pedestal in ex-Verizon territory. The cable runs across the sidewalk, up a tree, across the street, and down a tree on the other side, where it disappears into the ground.
I don't really see what the issue with this is. It's obviously a temporary solution. I've seen temporary lines just ran across roads before. So kudos to these guys for getting it in the air away from vehicle tires.
